Solar Boy Django (太陽少年ジャンゴ "Taiyō Shōnen Django" in Japan) is a manga series by Makoto Hijoka. It's loosely based on the Wikipedia:Boktai Wikipedia:Video Game series. The story involves a young Wikipedia:vampire hunter named Django, who is looking for his big brother, Sabata, who disappeared on one of his trips.


The story follows Django, a vampire hunter who is looking for his brother Sabata. When he arrives at a town, he meets Master Otenko, messenger of the sun. After Otenko explains the Legend of the Solar Boy, he tells Django that he is the new Solar Boy, the one with the Solar Tribe bloodline. The townspeople soon tell Django that who attacks the town with the Undead is a strong vampire known as "The Count". Django goes to his castle and fights him. After defeating him, a Knight-like vampire appears. Django recognizes the scar on the vampire's hand as the very same scar Sabata had, and realizes that the vampire, Luna, must be Sabata. And so, his quest begins.

Drawing style[]

The drawing style is very different from the game's official art, with a style more like Wikipedia:Shaman King's; Django himself closely resembles Wikipedia:Horo Horo. Otenko looks like a revamped version of his game self, with more details. Sabata looks like his game self, only a bit older akin to Lucian from Wikipedia:Lunar Knights (who is named Sabata in Japan).


Django: The main character. Son of Red Ringo, the legendary vampire hunter who fought Black Dainn.

Otenko: Messenger of the Sun. Resurrected thanks to Django's efforts, makes Django realize he is the Solar Boy.

Arnica: A half-vampire, half-human girl. Django's very first friend when he began his journey.

Sabata: A famous vampire hunter. He was kidnapped by Dainn and was transformed into the Dark Boy.

Ringo: The Legendary Vampire Hunter who fought Dainn. He is Django's and Sabata's father.

Dainn: Boss of the vampires. He kidnapped Sabata in order to resurrect Jormungandr.

Story Arcs[]

Luna Arc
This is when Django begins his journey. He must defeat all the Immortals to go to the Dark Castle and face Luna. After killing the vampires and going to the Dark Castle, it turns out that Luna is simply a suit of armour, and that Sabata is held hostage by Black Dainn.

Dainn Arc
Django must go to Dainn's castle to rescue Sabata. He still has hope he can turn Sabata back into a human, but he must fight Dainn's new immortals on the way. To make it worse, he finds that his father Ringo, who is now a vampire, has lost his mind and attacked him. It's only matter of time until Jormungandr gets revived by Dainn.

Return to San Miguel Arc
After defeating Black Dainn, Django returns to San Miguel to find a vampire attacking it, with a 50,000 Soll bounty on its head. Also, Django meets up with an old friend, but not in the way he had hoped.

Django & Sabata Arc
This one covers the Wikipedia:Lunar Knights (Bokura no Taiyou: Django & Sabata in Japan) events, having the same Django and Sabata from before, but Sabata with the Dark Sword Vanargand (Ankoku ken Vanargandr in Japan) instead of the Gun del Hell. He also meets Nero, Messenger of the Moon. This arc is currently in progress.
